[Video] Hanging Out with a New Kind of NYC Gang

Watch it here:

On August 27th, JJIE and SparkAction facilitated a live group video-chat featuring staff members from the Save Our Streets Crown Heights Mediation Center in New York City — a community-based program modeled after the successful Cure Violence program in Chicago — and journalist Clay Duda – author of the article “The Art of Interrupting Deadly Youth Violence.” It was a lively conversation discussing how the program works, the importance of the youth component and what other cities and localities can learn and start from Save Our Streets Crown Heights.
